The Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica’s most biodiverse region, has been designated as the country’s most biodiverse destination by National Geographic Traveler. Most visitors to Costa Rica prefer the hustle and bustle of the capital city and overlook the Peninsula, which is less well-known than the capital city.
The Osa Peninsula, on the other hand, is known for its secluded, powdery white beaches, untouched scenery, and several national parks, whereas San José is known for its bustling food markets, live theaters, and a plethora of (delicious) coffee cafes to choose from.
The area is also home to a diverse range of animals, some of which are listed as endangered species by the United Nations Environment Programme. Learn more about what the Osa Peninsula has to offer in greater depth…
Drake Bay is located in the Pacific Ocean.
Drake Bay, located on the western shores of the Osa Peninsula, is the starting point for two of the Osa Peninsula’s most popular attractions, Corcovado National Park and Cao Island Biological Reserve. Corcovado National Park is the most visited attraction on the Osa Peninsula, and Cao Island Biological Reserve is the least visited. A boat or an airstrip are required to reach the island. Here you’ll find hiking trails and waterfalls as well as river and pool swimming, as well as some of the best snorkeling and scuba diving in Costa Rica.
Corcovado National Park is located in Costa Rica.
Corcovado National Park contains the largest lowland rainforest in Central America, as well as being one of the world’s richest and most diverse tropical ecosystems, according to the World Wildlife Fund. All four monkey species, as well as the critically endangered pumas and jaguars, can be found in the park. In the hope of seeing as many different species as possible, park rangers will lead tours of the area each day, allowing visitors to see as many as possible.
Cao Island’s Biodiversity Reserve is a protected area that protects the island’s biodiversity.
A large number of the mysterious stone spheres discovered in Central America’s Cao Island biological reserve, which was formerly used as a cemetery, are thought to have been carved by pre-Columbian natives, according to archaeological evidence. Because of the crystal clear, azure waters in the marine reserves, this is a popular destination for divers and snorkelers.
